I believe there's specific text in magebred that says you can't.
I checked three times and seen nothing of the sort. So behold the pwnage. :D
Look again.
ECS, p. 37: A druid or ranger may never acquire a magebred animal as a companion. Most druids and rangers are ambivalent toward such creatures, while some consider magebred animals to be corruptions of nature.

Then again, Five Nations, p. 75 changes this to:
A druid from Breland of 7th level or higher or a ranger from Breland of 14th level or higher may select a magebred brown bear as her animal companion instead of a polar bear.
A druid from Breland of 7th level or higher or a ranger from Breland of 14th level or higher may select a magebred ghost tiger as her animal companion instead of a dire lion.

Yay for stealth errata!

Wait a minute.

I can choose a GHOST tiger as an animal companion?

As in a tiger with the ghost template? If so, then having an AC that can cast telekinesis would be awesome.
Monks are pretty much the best designed class ever.

Ghost Tiger is a particular animal in the Eberron setting.
I am constantly amazed by how many DM's ban Tomb of Battle.  The book doesn't even exist!

Q160:How high can I get the spellcraft modifier by level 21?
I know about Item familiar,skill focus,magical aptidude ,maybe an item that gives competence bonus and masterwork Item.....
The epic feat is allready taken(epic spellcasting)
What else can boost spellcraft?The character would have to cast ninth level spells so prestige classes that lose up to 4 caster levels are acceptable.....

A +50 spellcraft item would cost 50*50*100*10 = 2.5M

Q 167 a. Is there any way to get your armor bonus (from armor) to touch attacks?
         b. Is there any way to get your shield bonus (from shield) to touch attacks?
A 167 b:
Two feats are possible to do this:
Shield Ward from PHB 2.  Adds your shield bonus to touch AC as well as on checks against bullrush, disarm, overrun, grapple, and trip. Requires Shield Specialization.
Parrying Shield from Lords of Madness adds your shield bonus to AC.  No prerequisites except for proficiency.

Edit: dammit, already answered

Edit:Well I found this thread which answers my question.....

Ghost Touch (MIC) will add the enhancement bonuses (but not the base AC) as a touch AC bonus.
You mean Ghost Ward.  Ghost Touch is in the DMG (+3 bonus, applies to Incorporeal attacks).

I got the name wrong? Well damn. Surprised I still remember as much as I do though.

Sunic may be more abrasive than sandpaper coated in chainsaws (not that its a bad thing, he really does know what he's talking about), but just posting in this thread without warning and telling him he's an asshole which, if you knew his past experiences on WotC and Paizo is flat-out uncalled for. Never mind the insults (which are clearly 4Chan-level childish). You say people like Sunic are the bane of the internet? Try looking at your own post and telling me you are better than him.

Here's a fun fact: You aren't. By a few leagues.

i now make a full attack with flurry:
+11/+6/+1 is normal

Q169 What ways does an artificer have to craft a metamagic rod for a type of metamagic feat (like say, Extend Spell) that they do not actually have? Where are those resources specifically explained?

So far as I know, none.  That's why the Artificier has Metamagic feats on their bonus feat lists.

Q170: Can a Paladin pick a templated special mount without having a feat for said template?
[spoiler]Fighter: "I can kill a guy in one turn."
Cleric: "I can kill a guy in half a turn."
Wizard: "I can kill a guy before my turn."
Bard: "I can get three idiots to kill guys for me."

On a strange note, would anyone be put out if we had a post about people or events we can spare a thought for, or if its within their creed, a prayer for? Just a random thought, but ... hells I wouldn't have known about either Archangels daughter or Saeomons niece if I didn't happen to be on these threads.
Sounds fine to me.
probably over on "Off-topic".
might want to put a little disclaimer in the first post.

This is the Min/Max board. We should be able to figure out a way to optimize the POWER OF PRAYER(TM) that doesn't involve "Pazuzu, Pazuzu, Pazuzu".

Can they pay an assistant who does have the feat to provide the feat for them? I know with crafting that the person spending the XP doesn't have to have the spell, they just need access to the spell for it to be cast in the item... is it RAW acceptable for someone who DOES have the feat to help them with it?

Q 171 When advancing a monster, how do you determine their Rend increase?

Stats are Str 35 (+12), Dex 17 (+3), Con 26 (+8), Int 24 (+7), Wis 24 (+7), Cha 28 (+9), they're large size, and all I get for a write-up on rend is Both claw attacks do 1d8+12 each.

Is it something like double damage die + 1.5 times the damage bonus? So 2(1d8) + 1.5 (12)?

Yes, multiple people can cooperate on making magic items. The prereqs can be provided by any of them.

A couple of water benders, a dike, a flaming arrow, and a few barrels of blasting jelly?

Sounds like the makings of a gay porn film.

Q 172 It doesn't say you can't, but can you take Improved Initiative multiple times, and does it stack? I'm reading a few templates that each give the feat with it, but it doesn't state that you can switch it out for another feat. Just wondering if it was possible for a creature to have that feat 2-3 times for +8 to +12 to their initiative.
